Carlene Mitchell, Tim Vom Steeg, Juan Paredes To Appear on This Week's "Talk'n Gauchos"

Men's soccer head coach Tim Vom Steeg, women's basketball head coach Carlene Mitchell, and men's cross country's Juan Paredes will be join host Gerry Fall on this week's "Talk'n Gauchos."

"Talk'n Gauchos," which is broadcast every Tuesday from the Beachside Bar and Cafe, can be heard over the air on KZSB AM 1290 the Santa Barbara News-Press Radio Station and online at UCSBgauchos.com from 6-7 p.m.

Fans are encouraged to attend the show live at the Beachside. Located on Goleta Beach, fans in attendance will be able to see the guests in person as well as participate in raffles and drawings featuring UCSB prizes.

Vom Steeg's side is coming off a heartbreaking loss to rival Cal Poly. The Mustangs were able to score a golden goal in the sixth minute of overtime after equalizing with just over a minute to play in regulation. A crowd of 13,467 -- the top attendance mark in the NCAA this season -- came out to watch the nationally televised match. The Gauchos will host their final two home games of the regular season, including a "senior night" matchup against Stanford on Friday night.

Carlene Mitchell and the women's basketball team are preparing for the rapidly approaching season opener. Nov. 5's matchup against Vanguard will kickoff the start of Mitchell's second season at the head of the program. Her first year -- capped by a Big West championship and a trip to the NCAA tournament -- was wildly successful.

Juan Paredes will be featured on the show as part of UCSB Athletics' ongoing "Great Example" campaign. Juan and the cross country teams will be participating in the Big West Championships this weekend in Riverside, Calif.
